The holiday, which was started by a bunch of graduate students, doesn’t have the most legitimate of origins. However, does on really need a reason to celebrate the glorious food that is bacon?

1. Make bacon roses. Tell your loved ones “Happy National Bacon Day!” with a bouquet of the best-smelling flowers possible. Instructions are in the video below.
